Transcript

  • 1. Alexander the Great and the Succession 336
    • Alexander ascended to the throne of Macedon in 336 BC at the age of 20
    • The initial change went smoothly, but, like any ruler, Alexander had a tricky early period to overcome. We will soon see how he overcame these problems
    BUT How would you have done in his place?
  • 2. Competition
    • Alexander carried out a full state funeral for his father with due pomp and ceremony
    • Alexander’s position was far from secure though. His cousin Amyntas who was married to one of Philip’s daughters, may well have become a focus of a plot to usurp Alexander’s position
    What do you do?
  • 3. Attalus
    • Attalus was in Asia Minor with his army
    • Apparently he has been in treasonable correspondence with Demosthenes, the leader of Athens
    What do you do? Tread carefully Attalus is extremely popular with the men.
  • 4. More News Attalus has sent Demosthenes' letters as a sign of his loyalty and goodwill. Does this change your decision?
  • 5. Macedonia
    • There is some unease amongst the Macedonian nobility and the ordinary people are also unsure .
    How do you win them over?
  • 6. The League of Corinth
    • The League is disintegrating
    • Rebellion ha sprung up amongst the Greek states and the northern tribes!
  • 7.  
  • 8. Rebellion Hotspots
    • Athens is ready to fight
    • Aetolia are showing a willingness to fight
    • Thebes has expelled all Macedonian troops stationed there
    • Sparta is prepared to rebel and are collaborating with Athens
    • Thrace and Illyria have risen up
    You are surrounded on all sides. Formulate a plan to deal with this
